Disciplining the Disciplines*

Show Summary Details


This chapter gives a brief overview of emergent taxonomies of disciplinarities in scholarship, and documents the engagement with these as ‘the Interdisciplinary Project’ within the Evidence Programme. It gives a situated and provisional interdisciplinary account of the process of the programme over time that is designed to evoke the experience as much as the emergent understanding of interdisciplinary work. The chapter aims to make the unfamiliarity of the processes of interdisciplinary work more intelligible and elucidate what is at stake in an interdisciplinary approach to interdisciplinarity.

Keywords: Interdisciplinarity Project; Evidence Programme; interdisciplinary work; interdisciplinarity
